In this very special episode, Angélica Negrón and friends talk about death, grief, and the accompanying melodrama inherent in Latinx culture. Brooklyn-bred vocalist, composer & visual artist Raquel Acevedo Klein conjures voices from el más allá with her haunting layered vocals and El Living Room’s very own director, the undisciplined artist, musician & filmmaker Macha Colón makes a special appearance to talk about her recent film Perfume de Gardenias, a black comedy about Puerto Rico’s funeral culture. Multi-hyphenate, larger-than-life-and-death Miss Colombia herself, Lido Pimienta, calls in for an El Wassap catch-up to talk transitions, trauma & telenovela-level family secrets. We’ll shed off the heaviness with an escapist, psychic cool-down with Mela Pabón as she guides us through a no-nonsense meditation to soothe our deepest, most irrational fears.
